Meet The Team

Jon Kramer

Jon Kramer



Jon is a founding partner of Sundial. His roots in solar run deep, starting in 1969 when he soldiered together small solar arrays using solar cells his dad brought home from Goddard Space Flight Center. Jon spent many years in the building and engineering trades before starting Sundial Solar Consultants in Florida in 1999. He holds a BS in Engineering Geology from the University of Maryland and is NABCEP certified in solar PV.

Glen Goldsby

Director of Operations


To say Glen is motivated in the Solar Industry would be an understatement. Glen started his career in solar energy in 2012 when he literally went coast-to-coast – from New Jersey to California – to get multiple PV certifications. He begin his career at Synapse Electric in Marin County. Upon his return to Minnesota in September 2012, Glen started as a Solar Technician for Sundial. From there, he has worked his way up to his current position as Director of Operations.

Director of Technical Operations


After many years in the IT field, Todd focused his sights on renewable energy and joined the Sundial Team in 2010. If you have a technical question about the operation of a solar system or the software involved in monitoring, Todd is your go-to guy. Todd’s primary responsibility is to make sure all Sundial arrays are working efficiently and in optimal condition. He also maintains our monitoring portal called Solstice.
